On Monday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert showed just how ridiculous Donald Trump’s Twitter feed has gotten, while also commenting on how dangerous his rallies have become. “We’ve all had our fun poking at the big orange Garfield who hates Mexicans instead of Mondays,” he admits. “But recently Trump’s rallies have gotten ugly.”
Last week, a Trump supporter in Fayetteville sucker punched a non-violent protester. There were so many angry protesters at Trump’s rally in Chicago, they cancelled it, “which is strange, because usually a mob of angry people is a Trump rally.” And in Dayton, Ohio, a protester tried to rush the stage. “The protester has been charged with disorderly conduct and inducing panic, which means that he could be the next Republican frontrunner.”
On Twitter, Trump said the protester had links to ISIS and posted a hoax video as proof. When asked about the fake video by NBC’s Chuck Todd, Trump said, “What do I know about it? All I know is what’s on the internet.”
Colbert takes a second to let that sink, before reasoning that “Trump is America’s gullible uncle, just forwarding anything he sees online. Obviously, his first state dinner will be honoring that imprisoned Nigerian prince — and it won’t cost us anything, because the prince promises to send us a check.” Watch the clip to see what Stephen thinks Trump should be afraid of on the internet.
